Everyone is familiar with the play (and film) of ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’ but few are aware of the delightful play that Cartwright wrote entitled ‘Two’. As its name implies, it was written for only two actors, who play all fourteen roles and is a real tour de force in acting. Set in a pub, the play is made up of a series of monologues and duologues, against the background of a bickering landlord and landlady. The reason why they’re at each other’s throats becomes clear towards the end of the play, when the arrival of one person at the pub causes a shift in the couple’s relationship.
